Full Answer

Leno's collection is housed in three adjacent warehouses in Burbank, California, and he has several full-time employees in what he calls "The Big Dog Garage."

Among the cars are five Bentleys, two Shelby Mustangs and a 1934 Rolls-Royce Phantom. He also has several Bugattis, at least three Lamborghinis, and several pre-World War II Duesenbergs, including one that belonged to the Levi Strauss family. He has a 1925 steam-powered Doble once owned by Howard Hughes and a 1964 Chrysler Turbine Car, one of the few examples left in existence.

Jay Leno's first classic car, a 1955 Buick, was the car he drove to California when he decided to break into the comedy business. He often slept in the vehicle in the alleys behind comedy clubs. It now has a Corvette suspension and a big-block motor. Mr. Leno still drives the car from time to time.

The collection spans over 100 years. The cars and motorcycles in the garage are all operational.
